The YMCA Fall Festival was our first chance to show off the kids' costumes and do a little trick-or-treating.
I am super, super thrilled with Vera's costume. At first, when she said that she wanted to be the Queen of Hearts I had to groan. I didn't love the costumes that were out there and I had no idea how to make it. Then, I found a site on pinterest that showed tulle ballroom skirts and there was an example of the Queen of Heats. Sweet! I ran with the idea and love the result. Plus, she loves it, which is the best part.
Mrs. B made her little guy the cutest calculator costume. As for my boys, they are spending this Halloween as pirates. Now, if I could just get The Dude to keep his accessories on. He has swords, a parrot, earrings, and a hook. I don't think he will end up wearing any of it.
Oh boys, so sweet and yet so much work.
